Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche visits Lion’s Roar on Emotional Rescue Tour

Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche stopped at the offices of Lion’s Roar in Halifax, Nova Scotia, while on his 2016 North American Emotional Rescue Tour. Rinpoche greeted old friends and met new ones at the headquarters of the magazine and its sister publications, BuddhaDharma and Mindful.

The above video of the visit and interview is peppered with reminiscences of previous visits by Dzogchen Ponlop, plenty of laughter, and comments about Rinpoche such as “I like the way you think.”

Rinpoche gave a copy of his new book, “Emotional Rescue: How to Work with Your Emotions to Transform Hurt and Confusion into Energy that Empowers You,” to the staff. Included in the book was a poem written by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche and dedicated to Lion’s Roar. In the video, a staff member reads the lovely poem to a gathering of his colleagues and Rinpoche.
